CrystalEYES Wired page
Quick info: The CrystalEyes Wired by StereoGraphics are supposed to be a low-cost alternative to the wireless CrystalEyes CE2 with ENT DIN-3 emitter. The 'Wired' look suspiciously like the discontinued low-cost SimulEyes consumer glasses. Now there's a VESA compliant mini-DIN-3 jack at the end of the wire. Although the glasses come with two rubber nose-pieces to choose from the comfort is far from perfect. The cable is thin and stubborn as those from some other low-cost glasses. The LCD-panels are rather dark and of medium size.
The verdict: The quality of the
CrystalEyes Wired isn't satisfying for the professional user who should
rather go for the CrystalEyes2 or NuVision 60GX. The high price and the
lack of low-cost boards with DIN-3 connector locks the CE-Wired out of
the consumer market. The new VESA DIN-3 compliant ELSA
Revelator glasses meet and beat the quality and comfort of the 'Wired'
in most departments at a fraction of the cost.
What's not taken into consideration here is the amount of support which is granted to professional users by StereoGraphics and its partners. I hope it's good.
